Eric Holder launches 'snitch line' on Zimmerman

Eric Holder launches 'snitch line' on Zimmerman
Trolling for tips

Attorney General Eric Holder has authorized an internet e-mail address for the American people to inform on fellow citizen George Zimmerman on any of his past thoughts, opinions, or statements that may constitute civil rights violations against Trayvon Martin, as reported by Fox News on July 17, 2013.

Despite a finding of not guilty by a Florida court on charges of second degree murder and manslaughter, Zimmerman is still under the watchful eye of the nation’s top law federal enforcement official.

Other than the Sanford, Florida jury clearing Zimmerman of all charges, the Civil Rights Department of Holder’s own FBI has investigated Zimmerman in hopes of uncovering any evidence that would constitute levying federal hate crimes charges against the former neighborhood watch captain. The same FBI investigators cleared Zimmerman of any hint of bigotry or racial prejudice in his past, as Investor’s Business Daily noted on July 16. The report described Zimmerman as “overzealous and as having a ‘little hero complex,’ but not as a racist.”

Regardless of the course of justice, Holder released his internet tip line within 48 hours of pledging at the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) that the Department of Justice would “consider all available information” prior to moving ahead on any legal action against Zimmerman.
